Goodbye Taiwan, you beaut lil’ island

It’s been about six months since I moved from Tainan, Taiwan to my new home here in Portugal. I’m finding the move to be a bit of a trip. The change in pace, culture, language, friends, family and the obvious restart to my art practice has been a humbling experience.  But, before I jump into the european life, I just wanted to give a little send off to my time in Taiwan. If you haven’t been there, I’d highly recommend it. For me it was magic everyday.

The possibility of stumbling upon a Daoist ceremony is very high.

Daily life is an artistic assemblage

Public sculpture reflects a different time

The fashion is practical for the climate

And Pole-dancers on Jeeps send off dead men.

Thank you Tainan.

About Michael Meneghetti

The little personal details can often be overlooked in the hustle of the city, but somewhere on the edge I always manage to stumble upon a little bit of visual gold! When I can, I make performances that explore a state of masculinity and curate video art for public spaces.
